My current varifocals are overdue for replacement and the new prescription has less difference between my eyes, switching to cheap readers for super close up work or mid distance screen viewing is a real pain at present but I'm not about to pay proper money for glasses that will end up being sat upon or attacked with a soldering iron.....

I have so far resisted buying glasses, but I will soon give up I guess. Time to recognize time's passing! Damn. :D

I can’t imagine anything sexier than these for attracting a life partner! :smirk:

On a slightly more serious note, I was throwing out old manuals from gear long gone last night and I come upon a manual for an LG monitor. It appears that there was included software for this monitor that allowed one to split the screen into 2 or 3 parts. I never knew this but for some this could be useful. It could deal with the bezel-in-the-middle issue.

The easiest approach for this is simply to surround the middle bezel in a Someone Else's Problem field.

Then it will just magically disappear from view. :thumbup:

It's actually just as big as two 27" side by side as I have now... and 1440 resolution - I can pretend I still do not need glasses.

Nothing not to like!

Just noticed this comment, were you thinking of the NXT flat panel speakers Folderol?
